Art All Dayer: Spring Edition

Following the amazing success of our previous Art All Dayer events, we’ll be back with another in Spring 2022! The ‘Art All Dayer: Spring Edition’ will take place Saturday 19th March, and you can expect everything you have come to know and love about Cotton On MCR events, plus much more!

We are bringing you Manchester’s biggest art event, from Manchester’s best creatives. We pride ourselves on creating events for Greater Manchester, which are ran by and show off the talent of those right here in our region! We are all about promoting local artists and talent and celebrating the amazing Manchester art scene. We want to create events that are open and welcoming to all, to show how there are a number of ways you can get involved in art, whether that be an art fair, workshops or exhibitions – we have it all!

Not only will we be back at the beautiful venue of Hallé St Peter’s with 65 Manchester based artists selling their arts, crafts, jewellery, ceramics, homeware and more, we’ll also be using their sister venue around the corner, Hallé St Michael’s! Alongside the art fair, we are back with our art workshops, housing these in both venues.

Plus, we will be hosting another exhibition! This time we will be showcasing the student talent of Manchester! We will be displaying the works of MMU Fine Art students, giving them a space to expand their work beyond art school!

Come see us on Saturday 19th March, Hallé St Peter’s, 11am – 6pm, £1 entry (on the door)!

Art Fair

As before, the huge art fair will feature 65 stalls of amazing, affordable, art, from paintings to prints and pottery to photography! We only feature the work of creatives living and/or working in the Greater Manchester region, making sure we promote the best, local talent this incredible city has to offer. We do our best to make sure we have a huge variety of work, so there really is something for everyone, and at affordable prices too. We ask our artists to make sure the majority of items they are selling are under £100. Come along and support your local artists and see a wonderful array of arts and crafts for sale!

If you fancy applying for a table to sell your work.

Art All Dayer: Art Fair

We are looking for Manchester based artists, creatives, crafters and more. (If you are not living or working in the Greater Manchester region, you will not be considered for the fair).

We are looking for affordable art and craft, preferably some items being under £100, but more expensive, original pieces are also welcome. Paintings, prints, photography, sculptures, homeware, jewellery, anything! The fair is open to anyone at any stage of their career.

You can apply via this link. Deadline to apply is Midnight Friday 4th February.

Arts and Crafts Workshops

At our previous events our workshops have been quite a success! The same as our Winter Art All Dayer, we’ll be hosting workshops both in Hallé St Peter’s and their sister venue (literally around the corner) Hallé St Michael’s too! This way we can bring you a wide range of workshops, including some new ones that we’ve had in the works:


We are all about giving Manchester artists an opportunity to showcase their work, and what better way than an exhibition! This time around, we want to give the opportunity to art students in Manchester to show their work to a wide audience. Through an open call to the Fine Art students at Manchester Metropolitan University, we’ve got an exciting group exhibition to display.

This exhibition will be an opportunity for Manchester’s upcoming talent to show their work in a context outside of art school, which is pivotal for their professional development. It will also, more importantly, be a chance for visitors to get a taste of Manchester’s exciting upcoming art scene!
